Problem opening title

thea Community Member Posts: 1
I have Lectora publisher 11.3 and have a problem with opening a title, probably made in another version. The program says: "while loading the title, a resource specified within the title could not be found" and then it says there is lots of missing files. I suspect missing files is not the problem here. Do you know the solution?

    1. In Windows, it's easy to confuse a zip file and a folder. If you're opening Lectora from a zip file, it'll open the AWT (project) but won't be able to access any images in the zip, hence "missing resource" notifications. Solution: unzip to a folder, then open AWT.

    2. A Lectora project includes an .AWT file (the main project file) as well as couple of folders (/images/ if you have images, /media/ if you have sound, /extern/ if you have any other files attached to the project). It could be you copied or downloaded only the .AWT file and forgot to copy/download the folders, hence the missing resources.

    3. Any file naming issues, network issues, etc can cause this. Make sure you open the project locally and that the file names look okay (e.g. they don't include corrupted accented characters, special characters etc). Happens a lot to non-English titles.
